It does so to mixed results. The film is not without merit however, containing several moments of subtle brilliance before … Continue reading ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile’ Is A Film About Denial – ScreenHub Entertainment
As a child of the 90s, few films resonated with the culture like Terminator 2 : Judgement Day. On every front from its reviews to its box office, it seemed to have dwarfed its predecessor as the Schwarzenegger movie to end them all. And though I still have boundless love for Cameron’s innovative sequel, as I grow older, more and more I find myself going … Continue reading Love Is A Battlefield: Remembering ‘The Terminator’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

Zack Snyder found his Atleantean in Jason Momoa and sought to re-invent the character. We got our first … Continue reading ‘Aquaman’ Spoiler-Free Movie Review – ScreenHub Entertainment
David Gordon Green’s Halloween has opened to an impressive response. It has surpassed Wes Craven’s Scream as the highest grossing slasher film of all time, and revitalized interest in a series that many thought was long dead. But is the movie good? In short, yes. Green’s Halloween has many moments of cinematic artistry the likes of which the series hasn’t seen since Carpenter’s 1978 original.

Among these controversial conversations were political talks centred around a push for equality of all kinds – equality for racial minorities, for women, for the LGBT+ community. While none of these topics have emerged as novelty ideas, previously unfamiliar to humanity, their importance has been widely disregarded throughout history by people in positions of power. Politicians, the media, and the big businesses alike have turned a blind eye to the most marginalized groups in society; yet, as this new era dawns, many are determined to give prominence to those whose lives are too often neglected.
Absolutely everything today is public – every post, every text, every email, every tweet. In our internet-obsessed world, humanity is permanently connected through each individual’s digital footprint. It is no longer uncommon to wake up to a seemingly endless string of tweets made by anyone from world leaders to the primary faces of pop culture.
